The wording is a little different from INT 892-2023 which was introduced a few weeks ago.

“As we embark upon 2023, Nassau County taxpayers should take stock of what County Executive Bruce Blakeman has – and has not – achieved during his first year in office … What can the County’s taxpayers and business leaders do then to get this County Executive’s attention and spur his administration to act? As a starting point, we suggest this list of New Year’s resolutions: … Require gun store owners to lock up firearms at night to protect our children from gun violence – the leading cause for children’s deaths …”
“This bill would require the Police Department to establish a monthly gun buy-back program, whereby individuals may voluntarily and anonymously surrender to the department a working or non-working unloaded gun or parts thereof, in exchange for a sum of money to be determined by the department upon surrender. Individuals surrendering a gun would not be required to provide identification or any personally identifiable information, and would not be subject to criminal or civil penalties for the illegal possession of such gun, unless such penalties are required by local, state or federal laws, rules or regulations. The gun buy-back program would take place in a different borough at least once each month, on a rotating basis.”
Councilman Joe Borelli is a savage. He introduced a bill to City Council INT 873-2023 amending the administrative code of the City of New York, in relation to designating Times Square a crime free zone:
“… The area commonly known as Times Square, as described in subdivision a of this section, is designated a crime free zone. The police department, in collaboration with the department of transportation, shall install and maintain signs throughout such area that clearly and conspicuously identify it as a crime free zone …”

“… On Monday, Legislators approved a resolution to establish the Detailed Instruction Supporting Community Violence Education and Reduction (DISCOVER) program. In partnership with the Sheriff’s Office, the program would focus on supporting firearm education and training for legal gun owners and reducing the number of illegal guns in local communities … The DISCOVER program would offer pistol training courses for County residents run by the Sheriff’s Office; an anonymous illegal firearm tip line for individuals to report information about illegally possessed guns and a potential $500 reward if the tip results in seizure of a firearm; gun buyback events that incentivize individuals to surrender firearms in exchange for cash; and free gun locking mechanisms and instructions regarding best practices in keeping and storing guns at various events throughout the county …”
This is just fluff, meant to mollify gun owners into thinking they’re not the target of these proposals.
You can already get firearms instruction through local clubs, NRA instructors and private businesses.
The tip-line probably won’t accomplish much.
“… In addition to the DISCOVER program, the Legislature also adopted a local law to ban the possession of deadly weapons and dangerous instruments in Albany County facilities by individuals other than those on official business authorized to carry a such weapons. Signs will be posted at County building warning individuals that possession of a firearm, rifle shotgun or other deadly weapon, dangerous instrument, explosive device and/or poisonous gas is prohibited. Individuals caught carrying such weapons could be charged with an unclassified misdemeanor and subject to a fine not to exceed $1,000 or imprisonment up to 90 days …”
This is the last thing they need to do. Gun Free Zones are a magnet for mass murderers.
